Storyline

Alan and Wendy Barnet, a quiet, upper-middle-class yuppie couple, are stuck in rut romantically. After some soul-searching, they decide to spice up their sex life by placing an ad in a swingers magazine. From among the many replies they receive, they arrange a date with Jack and Louise Bauer, a young couple who seem similar to the Barnets. After a very enoyable evening of spouse-swapping, the Barnets feel they've broken out of their rut and are ready to return to a life of monogamy. The Bauers, unfortunately, aren't quite so ready to let go. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Lame-O movie with storyline that makes no sense
8 December 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Besides the lack of steam, the whole concept makes no sense. For a mutual partnership to evolve, there should be some sort of trust and attraction between the people, but why would one couple keep on pursing this relationship when the other couple obviously is not going to give the same in return? It is no better than going to a professional escort service which would provide you with all the needs and even make believe that they actually care for you. When it comes down to the point of threats, is there a point in continuing the relationship? We're not talking about some obsessed person who cannot leave a relationship, but professional swingers who seeks someone who they are comfortable with and whom they could trust. And after the first few bad encounters, all those qualities in this relationship is gone.

As for Kristy Swanson being in the role of the seductress, it is all cold shower from her. The real steamer role comes from Brandy Ledford, who is suppose to be the wife that reluctantly went along with the swinger idea. She had all the body cues to entice even the stiffest of corpses while Swanson acted more like a tomboy or dominatrix.
